• Will I need to iron the outfit myself?
We steam iron every outfit right before delivery to remove any possible crease from it. We recommend you to hang the dress carefully till you use it. We do not advise ironing the dress yourself. However, If you do find a few wrinkles on it, please steam the outfit only at low heat. Do not, in any case, iron at high heat as this will damage the outfit.
• Can I alter the dress on my own?
We strictly advise you against doing any alterations at home. Each outfit is handled with tremendous care by our team to ensure that each customer has the best experience and hence we prefer to get all alterations done by our own team only. Security deposit would be deducted in case of any damage by reason of the outfit having been altered by the customer themselves.

We will refund your deposit in full, once the outfit has been returned to us and is in a good condition and has passed our inspection and quality check. If everything is well, the transfer will reflect in your bank account (or in cash, from our store) within 7 to 10 working days of the outfit/s reaching us. Please don’t worry, your money shall be safe with us!
*Please note that refunds shall be processed only to bank accounts and in cash (in case of cash payments). Refunds shall not be processed via GPay, PhonePe, PayTM or other similar applications.
• What if I accidentally stain or damage the dress?
Don’t worry! We know that you’ll treat these gorgeous outfits with love and care and that routine wear and tear is unavoidable – we totally understand that. However if we find ‘substantial damage’ to the outfit or a stain that cannot be removed through our standard dry cleaning process we will need to charge you to restore it. The charge will depend on the nature of the damage. Also, we may find that the damage is large enough that it results in a ‘major loss’ – which means we can no longer rent the outfit out or a majority portion of the outfit needs to be reworked at a high cost. In this case, we shall not be refunding any part of the security deposit, in order to compensate for the damage.
